Favorite thing: Zagreb is Ana?s city? that's the reason I first went there on a day trip from Ljubljana, and also the reason why I went back the following year. It's a nice city full of imposing austro-hungarian building... and also a city of forgotten smells: that of freshly baked bread, in particular. never has a city smelled nicer!

Fondest memory: Visiting a dear friend: Ana. Ana that was very late picking me up at the station, thus making me wonder if I had got off at the right place, and with no money, since I had forgotten to go to the exchange office, and left her phone number in Ljubljana. Ana?s who?s possibly the worst tour guide in the world but the sweetest funniest friend on Earth too. Ana who thought the Croatian Theatre was the Bosnian Theatre and who mistook the catholic church of Saint Nicholas for an Orthodox church. Ana who undertook the Herculean task to show me the wonders of her city and the charm of her family in only 12 hours, and succeeded.
